All the characters in The Darkest Minds. 🙂

There are so, so many bloggers that inspire me… I don’t think I could name just one. And I would feel bad for naming just a few without naming all the rest!

Probably Red London in A Darker Shade of Magic.

When I was little, I had this huge book of children’s stories. Every night before bed my mom would let me choose whichever story I wanted and she would let me read it to her. I loved that.
Why did you decide to start a blog?
I love books and wanted to share my love of books with others and interact with other book lovers like me!

I used to want to be a surgeon. But I’m working on becoming a teacher.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
If you were to be a character from any novel, who would you be and why?
